Watch "Animal Cops" to see what real superheros look like.


I really don't post pics of myself or talk about my physique because i annoy people.

Although my body is far from perfect and i could not compete in a body building show,
body builders are constantly annoyed at me because i never have an "off-season" body.


I have lifted steadily, since, 1992, studied anatomy extensively,
practiced weapons since 1977, started doing stationary trapeze 11 years ago
and teach and do lots and lot and lots of cardio as well as designed my own version of Yoga and Cardio Kickboxing.

It is nice to be here, where others care and work at it too.

I've never had a venue for all my skills before.

Thank you!

I am 5'4" 135 pounds of OBNOXIOUS and - obviously non-steroid muscles WITH skills.
( body builders can tell this too and it CONSTANTLY annoys them!)

Am I tech-enough to post a pic?????

JUST BARELY!

Depends on the Comic.

I'm closer to Watchmen than I am to Xmen.

I get comments like...

"Let me guess, you played football in High School?"

"No, I just carried lots of books. I even got to read them too."

Well, not as defined as I use to be but I'm getting back there. I was in really good shape once with good abs and physique. Almost to the point of being able to compete. Here's a pic of me from last year in Kansas City.

Warwing,

Pushups will always do a body good.
That and jumping rope.

One minute of pushups ( done slowly )
and four minutes of jumping rope -
alternate between the two for 30 minutes every day or every other day.

You can use an invisible jump-rope if you need to.

...not much space needed...WILL get your body better.

When you want more, type to me

For the record, while physical health is very important, it should be noted that even someone confined to a wheelchair can be a superhero. I'm not talking about Charles Xavier, either. If you can contribute to making your community better, or can help others, it doesn't matter what muscles you have, or what your BMI is.

So if you are an 8 year old cancer patient, laying in a hospital bed somewhere.. then kid, you're someone's hero. Your bravery and strength, even when your afraid and crying (because we all do that sometime or another), is tremendous and has gotten you through some tough times. Many of us can only hope we possess half the strength you have.

Ha ha. That is probably the comic character to which I have the closest resemblance. Why is it that the non-muscular characters are always the bad guys?

Those are great points, Silver Sentinel. But I still would like to get into better shape. Even though I do believe that I can be a Real Life Superhero at any weight, I would feel better about myself if I could at least be somewhat healthier. I know that losing weight would help me to lessen my self-consciousness and anxiety. Plus, I feel bad making my mother worry about my health all of the time.

I have read that human willpower is actually an exhaustible resource. Studies have shown that a group of people who are asked to refrain from eating tastey cookies will give up on a difficult taste more quickly than a group that was allowed to have a treat. I personally have always had trouble sticking to a diet and exercise plan. I am wondering if anyone here has come across any good information about overcoming this human willpower handicap?

Idea Man,
I am a certified Group Exercise Leader, Personal Trainer,
Yoga Instructor,
( Resistaball, Cycle, Bosu, Rolling, Kid's Exercise, Senior Exercise -
yes, I can go on and on)
and
Provider of Continuing Education credits for other Personal Trainers and Group Ex. leaders
and
I am a Recognized Expert Witness on the subject of Weight Lifting.

I am happy to help any RLSH with all things involving exercise and diet.

Please type to me these:

* What time of day you "like" to exercise
* How much space you have
* Any equipment that you have or have access to
* What you like ot eat and when


Also, Skinny people's brains shrink - love your self.
The brain burns five times more carbohydrates that all your other tissues
put together - night and day for a life-time.

Them who eat more, do more - brain and body.

PS. one sign of brain-shrinkage is belligerance or tanrums.
Notice how many skinny people are fussy.

Wink


Personally, I can't fall in love with skinny men...too many boney edges for hugging!

Nice.
Kid, here's my favorite health advice ever: take care of your teeth, your knees, and your back.
You're going to miss them all when you get older. Very Happy

Skinny has its advantages, especially as you get older and start to gain the weight that most guys seem to gain later on in life. It's not all bad.

Also everyone has a natural bodytype. You might be able to go against your type with effort, but my layman's opinion is that all three types are healthy as long as you're healthy.

There's really only one thing about this whole fat/skinny/whatever issue that really burns me up and that's the presumption of society that everyone needs to lose weight and that reducing the calories in foods makes those foods more valuable/desireable products... like those "eat this, not that" articles...

Anyway, you can always take the Charles Atlas course to stop getting sand kicked in your face at the beach.

My current routine is mostly employing body weight exercises such as burpees, hindoo squats, hindoo pushups, planks, etc.

I'm going to mix in some weight training as well, mostly curls and arm/chest exercises holding weights.

My main goals are building arm, chest, and hand muscle.
I've got plenty of muscle everywhere else from being a big guy for so many years. Very Happy

That is ok, honey!

If you restrict food, you, also, restrict your brain

The brain burns five times more carbs than all your other tissues
